Low Carb Peanut Butter & Cream Cheese Ganache Tart

TartThis started out as an experiment so I only made one which I ate all…by…my lonesome. I don’t often eat much dessert and now I am a self confessed pig.  It was so good I am posting a recipe that will serve 16.  They are deceptively simple and if you aren’t serving 16 people they freeze well for a future treat.  I just happen to have 8-3⅞” tart tins which is why I made them this way and you can certainly use a larger tart tin. Just be sure you use removable bottomed tins.

You will need 1 smaller crust recipe from Pie Crusts For Most Any Pie/Two Sizes. If you do have mini tart tins they also make a terrific shell for individual Lemon Curd tarts or any other small dessert you may wish to fill a tart shell with.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.
